Record November. Mild Start to December!

Thee next couple of days will feel warm by December standards!

Dense fog Sunday morning from @RAWNUTMEG_CT
A warm front transporting that mild air into the state is causing showers to develop this evening. Showers will be around through midnight-2AM, followed by partial clearing and patchy dense fog.  Low temperatures will drop into the 40s.

Monday morning fog will burn away, revealing mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will climb into low to mid 50s. Tuesday could be even milder with some towns approaching the 60 degree mark!  Clouds will lower and thicken up as a cold front approaches.  Showers develop Tuesday night into midday Wednesday, followed by partial clearing.  Behind the front, it will feel like December again with high temperatures returning to the 40s.

On a side note…It’s official!  This November was the driest on record for Windsor Locks with .40” of precipitation!  This beats the previous record of .51” set in November 1976.  Southern Connecticut got hit harder by our early November snowstorm with 1.22” of precipitation in Bridgeport.  That wasn’t even close to the record of .36” set back in 1976.
